Do you have any Polar Bear fans in your house? These powerful creatures are a firm favourite around here. I think for kids there is something really magical about the crisp white snowy habitat of the Polar Bear up in the Arctic, which really captures their imaginations. They look pretty cute and cuddly as well don’t they? We have joined up with The Jenny Evolution and lots of fantastic book loving bloggers to bring you lots of ideas for Winter and Holiday Children’s Story books. We are sharing a selection of Polar Bear Books for Kids, which will educate and entertain your children over the winter holidays.

Before kids I worked as a Librarian, so books have always and always will be a big part of our family life. There is nothing nicer than snuggling down to a story with my kids, knowing that not only are we spending some quality time together and also learning new words and building upon their own reading skills. Books are also a brilliant way to introduce new concepts to them, discuss difficult subjects with them and to teach them about the world that they live in.
I have chosen a selection of Polar Bear books for kids today, which reflect the age ranges of my own children (3, 6 and 8). I hope that you will be inspired to read a few of them with your own children. Polar bear books in particular are a great way to introduce the important subject of global warming with your kids, it is never to early to start to teach them about how they can protect not only the polar bears from the melting ice caps, but also the whole of the world around them.
